I am stalking your board in an effort to live vicariously through all of you and just wanted to throw in a shout out for the Eagle Creek packing folders. I used them for the first time on our London/Paris ABD and will not travel without them again. They really did a great job not only with conserving space but also with keeping the clothes from getting wrinkled.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

There is a Disney Store in Florence and Venice as well.

The Venice Disney Store is a bit harder to find, but we did it.
The ABD guides make a point of walking the group past the Disney stores in each city. Mostly for a photo op, but as they're sure to find out with this group, shopping will have to be fit in to the daily itinerary

Thank Goodness! I've already gotten the fish eye from my family when I reported that there was a Disney store in Rome that I was going to try to get to. Yes, I'm going all the way to Italy and after the Pantheon and the Pope I don't want to miss the Disney store. So sue me! That's why I travel with my peeps. They understand me.

So white capris. A bold move or an accident waiting to happen? I guess we'll wait and see!

You just have to decide if you’re a Tigger or an Eeyore.

Thanks, Laurie! I will definitely put the photos up on Flickr. After finally getting a chance to spend some quality time with my guidebooks this weekend, I am more excited than ever about the trip and the photos to be.

Hello all our ABD friends! I plan on living vicariously through Mike and Christy and Val and Jeff when they are on the Backstage Magic tour this summer!

I want to thank everyone for keeping the travel box gift a secret!! I just got home from a family trip and opened the box, which came while I was away. Super cool present, and not any of my guesses.

White capris! I am so jealous. I am a total spiller, can't even dream of white capris.

Is the Uffizi on the list of "official" activities for Florence?

I am thinking of going to the Borghese Museum on our free afternoon in Rome. I am sorry I haven't been able to be in chat - you all may have already talked about this. If anyone else is interested, I'd be happy to order tickets.

Hi Heather!
We were looking at the Borghese Museum. When were you thinking of going?
When do you arrive? Some of us are doing a food tour 9:45 am on 5/24. Would love for you to join us.

I think between Jeff and I, a steady stream of media will help fill your BSM void, Heather.

The Uffizi is not on the official list, but it's on mine! I can't decided between it and climbing the dome though. I don't know if we can fit both in. But I REALLY want to see the Birth of Venus in person.

Borghese is also on my radar but I'm not sure of a day for it. When were ya thinking?


In other news, I've been working so hard lately that it's cause my "condition" to get much, much worse. But that's a silver lining I think because today my therapist changed programs and started to focus on my neck instead of my arm and I feel like we made some progress. Maybe sometimes you have to get worse to get better? Who knew!

Google Maps just announced "3D Photo Tours" of various places around the world and there are a bunch from Italy.
